Novalac is a range of special infant formulas designed to feed and manage the common infant feeding problems. There are many different issues that babies may experience whilst being bottle fed. These include colic, reflux, diarrhoea, constipation, allergic reactions and constant waking due to hunger. These issues (normally short term) can affect babies, mothers and the entire family.
If you have moved from breast to bottle and your baby experiences feeding problems then talk to a healthcare professional, such as your doctor or pharmacist, for assistance. Remember, many infants are switched from their first recommended formula, so it is clear one formula does not suit all.
Breast milk is best for babies. Professional advice should be followed before using an Infant Formula. Introducing partial bottle feeding could negatively affect breastfeeding. Good maternal nutrition is important for breastfeeding and reversing a decision not to breastfeed may be difficult. Infant Formula should be used as directed. Proper use of an Infant Formula is important to the health of the infant. Social and financial implications such as preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula up to the age of 12 months should be considered when selecting a method of feeding.
After washing your hands, the scoop inside each new tin should be used. Boil clean drinking water for 5 minutes and allow to cool to 40 degrees Celsius (or heat clean fresh mineral water with a low mineral content to 40 degrees Celsius). Pour the required amount of water in the bottle first, measure and pour the correct quantity of Novalac powder into the bottle using the scoop provided levelling off each scoop, secure the bottle’s lid and swirl it between your hands until the powder is completely dissolved. Follow instructions available on each Novalac tin.
